Today's sortie in the A352 was simply a lunchtime spin in the glorious weather. I took my usual route over Painswick Beacon, round the town (where random pedestrians waved and clapped :), and back. I...

Thumbs up A New Hope (with apologies to Star Wars afficionados).

This has been the state of play more or less for the last four weeks. I discovered in that time that I have the wrong upper steering shaft, I think I may have given the correct one to the guy who...
